To walk down the street is a hazard at best,
They know we are different, unlike the rest.
They call us God Botherers, Bible Banger and Freak,
Because the life of Jesus is what we seek.
We canít park our cars, they get trashed if we stay,
The fish on the windowís a dead give away.
At the sight of our Bible's, folks sneer and gork,
To read such a book we all must be dorks.
Schoolies, they mock and offer rude gestures,
If we preach without permits Police will arrest us.
Weíre dirt underfoot to young lovers unwed,
Mobs of angry sinners want us dead.
The media crack jokes and cast dispersions,
The Lawyers create never ending diversions.
Committees and Councils throw spanners in the works,
Because Christians are just fanatics and jerks.
Protesters will sit and blockade our meetings,
Thereís problems with utilities and problems with seating.
Our houses are tagged by vandals and thugs,
Our families are bashed, our phones are bugged.
The Government raids at the drop of a hat,
For the kids sake itís done. How about that?
Thereís nowhere to hide and nowhere to run,
So letís look to God and draw strength from his Son.
You see weíre not the first and we wont be the last,
Thereís no point flying our flag half mast.
Be exceedingly joyful and exceedingly glad,
That we are found worthy to be treated this bad.
Our day is coming, the time is near,
Persecution will end. Then who will fear?
The good Christians? Oh no! Their hearts are aflutter,
As Jesusís wrath cuts through the world like butter.
Vengeance is mine says the King, our Lord,
Wiping corruption from the blade of his sword.
Whoís the freak now? Look at them run,
The terror of the Lord has finally begun.
So pity the world as it stones us to death,
Save as many as we can to our dying breath.
To know what is coming and do nothing is sin,
Be their example and take it on the chin
No one likes to be picked on, but unfortunately it becomes our lot in life once we devote our life to Godís service. Not only do we cop it from Satan and his horde, but our fellow men who have not realised Christís sacrifice, give it to us as well out of ignorance. It pays to remember, that the hotter things get for us here on this world, the better it will be for us in Godís kingdom. And if we do not react to the taunts and tribulation of the unbelievers, the coals will be heaped on their heads all the more. Powerful stuff when you start to ponder on it isn't it.
